Boiled Beef and Carrots [Sep. 6th, 2012|08:32 pm]
Douglas Spencer
Yesterday I made boiled beef and carrots, and today we ate it.

After she'd finished eating I said to Julia "I suppose you're familiar with the song."

It turns out she's never heard of the song. Imagine my consternation! Imagine the disruption to my world view! Now I'm worried that my friends are similarly poorly exposed to my culture. Hence, a poll.

This is in my "have always known" song repertoire, along with things like 'e Ain't Gonna Jump No More, Firty Fahsand Fevvers, Mairzy Doats, and the Lumberjack song (it's older than me, it counts).

Tonight we had meatballs with spaghetti, all covered with cheese... and yes, we all sang. (smallclanger decided to sing it to the tune of Chariots of Fire. Maximum ISIHAC exposure works!)
